Popcorntime version/build number? … OS/Device?

It’s not exactly a bug - you need to use the ‘Watch Now’ VLC option, because the internal (“Butter”) player doesn’t have the codec for playback (with that kind of torrent). You don’t need to reinstall PT … that’s just how it works?

I use iiNA for playback when this happens (Mac user) … but I’ve never had to do this with movies?
Are you sure you’re using Popcorntime.sh?
